The number one reason patients hate their dentures is poor fit. Loose dentures can slide around on the gums causing discomfort, pain, and can lead to dentures popping out at inopportune times. Mini dental implants can fix loose dentures. They provide an anchor for your dentures, stop slippage, eliminate denture soreness, and give you more confidence and freedom to live your life.
ABC Dental Implant Center in Las Vegas specializes in fitting patients with dental implants to improve their smiles. Dr. Kevin Khorshid has helped denture wearers become more confident and happy, thanks to mini dental implants. He’s even able to help patients who have been told by other dentists that dental implants aren’t an option.
How Mini Dental Implants Keep Dentures In Place
Mini dental implants can act as an anchor to hold your denture securely in place. Conventional dentures sit on top of the gums and require adhesives to stay in place. Even with the best adhesives, dentures are prone to slipping and sliding, especially on the lower jaw. With mini dental implants, your dentures lock onto the implants to stay firmly in place. They do not slip when you eat or speak and can withstand more pressure than traditional implants.
In order to keep your dentures in place, two to four dental implants are inserted into the dental arch, below the gums and into the jaw. Tiny titanium posts are placed into the mouth and your dentures snap on to the implants, where they are locked firmly in place. Some patients get nervous when they hear this, but the incision for mini dental implants is incredibly small and the healing time is fast.
Advantages Of Mini Dental Implants For Denture Stabilization
If you’re on the fence about getting mini dental implants to fix loose dentures, here are some advantages to consider:
[li]Eat and Socialize Freely – When your dentures are anchored into place with mini dental implants, you can eat more foods than you could with conventional dentures and you never have to worry about your dentures falling out. You’ll also be able to speak the way you did before dentures because you won’t have bulky pieces in the way of your tongue. [/li]
[li]No More Pain – You won’t have the pain and irritation associated with ill-fitting or loose dentures. [/li]
[li]No More Adhesives – Mini dental implants don’t require messy and expensive adhesive to keep your dentures in place, which saves you time and money every month. [/li]
[li]Maintain Your Jaw Mass and Health – Dental implants are inserted into the jaw, and act like natural tooth roots. This prevents you from losing more of your jaw mass and helps improve your overall oral health. [/li]
[li]Reduces Denture Odor – Bacteria and odor can get trapped between your dentures and your gums when you wear conventional dentures. Mini dental implants reduce the space between your gums and dentures, eliminating “denture breath.” [/li]
